Pat and Linda are pretty cool! Saw them last summer in Battle Creek MI on a 2 day seminar.

Beccajane, funny story: The first horse I owned as an adult was a 7 year old TB retired from the track. What I only learned later was that she'd never been retrained off the track. But ignorance, as they say, is bliss. I ordered a nice barrel saddle/bridle/breastcollar set from Chicks, and still remember the elation I felt when it arrived. Of course I set out to clean and oil it right away, to protect it (living in the humid swamp called Michigan at the time.). My husband, smart-aleck that he is, commented that since the stirrups were leather-wrapped, I should oil them as well, which I happily did. So, about 20 minutes later, after the umteenth showing of The Man From Snowy River, he and I, along with two friends, decided we were going out riding. She had worked well with me in the paddock but we were going across a dirt road into a field of grass. She was great going out, but the minute we reached the other end of the field and turned for home, she was off. Of course I couldn't stop her, and she was headed right for the trees in the ditch and the road. I was worried she was going through the trees and into the road, because people drove really fast up and down it, so I'm frantically trying to get her to stop, people behind me are yelling, do this, turn her head, pull back, etc. when she did a complete 90 degree turn in mid-air. Needless to say, she went right, and I kept going straight. We laugh about it now, of course!

Live long, laugh hard, love horses.

It's nice that you can laugh about it. And that you're OK. I have had horses for 30+ years and I'm STILL learning. I was even a 4-H Horse & Pony leader for 5 years. Then I was forced to "take a break" and take care of my parents and Mother in Law. But now I'm "back in the saddle again" and lovin' it. Back to trail riding almost every weekend. It's great! Aren't we lucky??
